Gypsies migrated from India to Eastern Europe. Many have settled into farming villages, after living nomadic lives. Others have established jobs or careers in bigger towns or in the cities. The term “gypsy” is sometimes considered derogatory because many of these people came from persecution or heavy prejudices. Others consider the term “gypsy” to be a descriptor part of their heritage. Gypsy people seem to be laidback and full of love. They love music, and prefer to incorporate many instruments at every gathering.
Last week, we had the opportunity to visit a Gypsy village about 30 minutes from the city. We visited two homes and organized a children’s program. There was lots of singing, a few skits, testimonies given, and fellowship with crackers and soda.
